Canadá: Conozca las medidas que se implementaron para ayudar al sector Agroindustrial para enfrentar pandemia COVID-19 (en inglés)
After weeks of smaller, province-specific actions, Canada’s federal government announced a CAD $180 million support package for farmers and agri-businesses on May 5.
The Prime Minister described the measures as an “initial investment,” indicating that more support could be provided in the near future.
Canada’s national farmer organization, the Canadian Federation of Agriculture, had asked the federal government to provide $1.9 billion to support food security during the COVID-19 pandemic response.
